The Thirst

The Thirst

The soul is lonely, longing for a companion

The heart is weary, craving a dear

Words fail me

Who can be told?

 

Isn’t love a beautiful thing

Or the bearers beauty carriers?

But then it comes with some baggage

That baggage none can tell

 

Oh, how singles miss!

Those mesmerizing moments

The long talks and chit chat

Indeed, it is beautiful

 

But the thirst is at the brim

The yearning highly demanded

The heart open for another

Loneliness a killer

 

Where is the Prince Charming?

Who is he?

Why does he tarry?

How can he be identified?

 

But then

There’s a confidence

Lines will fall in pleasant places

Very soon, it will become a fairy tale

Sleeping Next To Beauty

Beauty is beautiful Blessed with the true richness of an African Glistening melanin Thick, curly, woolly hair in a fashionable haircut Features carved in smallness; small eyes, lips and ears

    I read this and Britney Spears’ 🎶 My loneliness is killing me 🎶 began sounding in my head.
    The universe should please give those of us looking for love the love that we seek.
